ΔHrxn∘=−802.3kJ From the chemical equation, we can observe that one mole of methane yields 802.3 Kj. But our requirement is to yield 271 kJ = 271 kJ / 802.3 kJ= 0.33777 moles of methane are needed By using enthalpy of the equation to convert kilojoules of CH4 into moles. Utilizing the formula of molar mass by moles result in the mass of methane. The calculation is as followed = 16.042 g/mol * 0.33777 moles =5.4186g 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
